Are Racially Derogatory Names Allowed?

Embrace Diversity People A man claims he was fired because others complained about his race, calling him racially derogatory names. Obviously, if you were a white man complaining about a black supervisor, and you complained that you didn’t want to answer to an African American, you would probably be fired. If you used the N-word or some other racially derogatory word, you would also get in trouble. But we see evidence that the rules don’t work both ways equally. Thus, the Daily Caller reports, “Lawsuit: Black Read more [...] Continue reading →

Will Democrats Lose Black Voters?

republicans4blacks Allegedly black voters have not been responding to Hillary Clinton or others. Here is an interesting headline from the Washington Post: “Why Hillary Clinton and her rivals are struggling to grasp Black Lives Matter.” I think it is interesting because the word “grasp” is ambiguous. It can mean “understand” or “catch hold of.” Is Hillary Clinton having trouble comprehending Black Lives Matter or is she having trouble capturing them as voters? Amid the famous politicians, wealthy Read more [...] Continue reading →

KSDK.com reported, “ A Memphis man died in police custody in Southaven Saturday night after reportedly Read more [...] Continue reading →

Waitress Fired because She Forgot Table Number and Described Customers

receipt It is now a firing offense for a waitress to describe customers in order to serve them if she refers to their race. If you have a low-paying job serving people who are, typically, making more money than you, you had better watch yourself and remember the rules. You should also try to find a boss who isn’t a coward ready to punish you the moment such a customer is offended. This Fox 2 News story demonstrates the risks: “ On Sunday, FOX 2 received a photo from viewers angry about a Read more [...] Continue reading →

Left Goes on Binge Rewriting History

1984 One thing the recent Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage did was to give the radical Left in this country a boost of confidence. That much is clear. Since that ruling, which happened at almost the same time as the funeral for the people shot in South Carolina by Dylann Roof, the Left has been on a real tear through history, trying to rewrite the past to "prove" support for their unsupportable ideas. The funerals of Roof's victims and publication of a photograph of Roof holding a Confederate Read more [...] Continue reading →

Michelle Obama’s Disney World of Native American Stereotypes

Drones_02 Michelle Obama unloaded all her Native American stereotypes in a speech that must have been inspired by the Disney cartoon, Pocahontas. Apparently, as long as they are aimed at flattery, Native American stereotypes are just fine. CNS News reports, “ First Lady Michelle Obama said on Thursday at a tribal youth gathering at the White House that the United States is “finally” embracing the wisdom of Native Americans on conservation and climate change, and claimed that America’s founders Read more [...] Continue reading →

Is Congress Crossing the Line into Purging History to “Fight Racism”?

confederate race reconciliation Purging history isn’t going to do anything to spread tolerance or end bigotry because such actions constitute intolerant bigotry. As I said before, it is completely appropriate for voters in a state (through their representatives or by some direct referendum depending on how the system is set up) to remove a Confederate flag from state property or to stop allowing a Confederate flag as a license plate option. The Confederate battle flag does represent racism in the minds of many citizens and Read more [...] Continue reading →

Not a Hate Crime because It Was a Black Mob Attacking a White Victim

coke pepsi hate And we all know that there would be no national media panic about hate crime if the races were reversed, right? We really live at a cultural tipping point. The tipping point is this: there are enough liberals and cowardly wannabe-liked-by-liberals in positions of power and influence that we can (to some extent) keep laws about equality “on the books” while in fact instituting a system of inequality before the law. We can say that all hate crimes must be punished, for example. But we can, Read more [...] Continue reading →

Better to Die Childless than Breed White Privilege?

white-privilege-wristbands A University of Pennsylvania professor writes she will never have children because she doesn’t want to pass on White privilege. If you wonder why activists think that, just because sociopath Dylann Roof committed mass murder, you should want the government to disarm you, you might find that Ali Michael can help you understand the mindset. Michael wrote in the Huffington Post in response to the Rachel Dolezal trans racial weirdness, “I Sometimes Don’t Want to Be White Either.” She writes Read more [...] Continue reading →

Black Church Members Terrorized by Threatening, Racist Signs… from a Black Man

vincent broughton The man said he put up signs, that left Black church members terrorized, in order to expose corruption. This story seems remarkably sparse on details, especially motives: “Black Suspect Arrested After Racist Message Discovered Outside Predominately Black Church.” A Colorado Springs man was arrested after police believe he left racist messages outside a church. Vincent Broughton, 44, who is black, is facing charges for committing a bias-motivated crime and disorderly conduct. The signs Read more [...] Continue reading →

Next Step in Mass Hysteria: TV Land Stops Dukes of Hazzard Reruns

dukes of hazzard Dukes of Hazzard is suddenly unfit to broadcast. The stupidity and moral panic is bottomless. It just keeps getting worse. A horrible, psychotic racist walked into a Bible study and, after being confronted, opened fire with a handgun and killed nine people. The proper response is to blame the shooter, try him for multiple murders, convict him, and punish him. The more swiftly you do these things, the more likely a lesson will be learned in society that you had better not lose your mind to Read more [...] Continue reading →

Black People Used to Shoot Back and It Wasn't a Big Deal

Pistol The Second Amendment was a help to black people during the civil rights movement. A few days ago I pointed out that it was wrong to act like it was controversial for African Americans to consider arming themselves in order to protect themselves from violent attack. The Second Amendment is for black people, white people, and every other color. Since then Reason.com has uncovered some material about the civil rights movement: Dylann Roof’s racially motivated murders of nine black churchgoers Read more [...] Continue reading →
